It takes courage to grow up and
become who you really are.
~ e.e. cummings
These photos were taken by me and spunky lover while on holidays. It was my dad’s 50th birthday, and my sister’s 25th birthday. We were having a party, and my brother’s girlfriend Sandy pulled out her firetwirling wands and juggling sticks. The girl’s got skiiiiiilllllls.
After she twirled and juggled (with FIRE!) for all of us, her gorgeous 6 year old son Jess picked up the wand. And I thought… if a 6 year old can do it, then surely it wouldn’t be difficult for a 23 year old with questionable co-ordination to play with fire?
i never would have thought i would have celebrated out the end of the year
by standing in a paddock at night,
under a sky brimming with stars,
twirling fire with two new friends and my lover.
The greatest surprise is that there is anything at all — that we are here.
Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer
